Charming Detached Villa With Garage and Garden Walking Distance to the Beach for sale in Ferragudo, Algarve
This lovely home is filled with character, and has recently been completely renovated from the roof down. Centrally located on the main road to the beach in the pretty fishing village of Ferragudo, it is just 5 minutes walk to the stunning beach of Praia Grande as well as restaurants, shops and daily market.
From the driveway, a curved staircase with traditional Portuguese tiles leads to the hand-crafted solid wood front door and covered porch, where you can sit and watch the world go by. The entrance hall opens to a spacious open-plan living room.
The cosy sunken lounge has a wood-burning fireplace and patio doors leading to a terrace overlooking the front garden. There is a step up to the dining area which features a serving hatch to the kitchen. The dining area also has patio doors to an outside shaded terrace for al-fresco dining, overlooking the rear garden with space for a pool.
The fitted kitchen is bright and airy with a large built-in larder or pantry and plenty of cupboards for storage. The natural stone worktops are lit by under-cupboard lights and open onto a stone peninsula with space to sit and chat to the chef! The kitchen also has an exterior door leading to a utility area with lots of space for washing machine, dryer and other storage. From here, a hand crafted wrought iron gate leads to the garden.
Just off the entrance hall is a wet-room style shower room, convenient for guests as well as serving as a second bathroom for the three spacious bedrooms.
The comfortable master bedroom has double patio doors to a private balcony as well as a large built-in wardrobe. It is located next to the main bathroom with double sinks, walk-in shower plus separate bath tub. Inlaid spotlights in the wooden ceiling create plenty of light. The second bedroom also has a large fitted wardrobe with plenty of space, and the third bedroom has patio doors opening onto a covered terrace, perfect to enjoy a morning coffee.
An attractive spiral staircase with solid wood steps leads to the upper level and the "round room", which would make a lovely home office or artist's studio, or even a spare bedroom. This room is flooded with light and has a door to the roof terrace where there is ample room for sunbeds, a jacuzzi hot tub or just space to relax. An exterior staircase leads down to the rear garden.
The rear garden features a summer kitchen, perfect for outdoor entertaining, with shady seating areas, barbecue and counter-space for meal preparation. There are plenty of paved areas for relaxing in the sun, as well as fruit trees and flower beds ready for your landscaping ideas. There is space for a pool if you wish.
Under the house there is a large garage with plenty of storage space and enough room for two small cars. Adjacent to the garage is a basement which has been totally renovated as a one bedroom apartment with a bathroom with a walk in shower, a tiled kitchen area ready to be fitted with cupboards of your choice and a lounge /dining area. Alternatively, it would make a lovely games room, gym or home theatre. Stairs from this level lead to the garden at the rear of the property.
This property would make a fabulous family home, within walking distance to the beach and the Castelo of São João do Arade as well as the heart of historic Ferragudo with its vibrant square and all year social scene. The Nobel international school is just a short drive away.
Close proximity to the golf courses and beaches would also make this an ideal rental. The adjacent corner plot of 440m2 can also be purchased if you'd like extra space for a pool and gardens or even a guest cottage. Air conditioning to be included.
